During this year’s Superbowl halftime show, The Black Eyed Peas performed. Personally, I was impressed. There are mixed reviews but you can’t say anything negative about either their dedication to their craft or their passion for conveying a positive message. The song “Where is the Love” was an inspiring hymn to close their set with. So why on Earth is a review of The BEP’s on eTeachers? Well, during one of the songs, the words were craftily changed to speak out to President Obama and remind him how he promised to help educate this nation.
So… What does that mean exactly? President Obama will be running for re-election in a very short amount of time (speaking in terms of the half-life of a presidential term). No doubt, apart from putting Americans back to work and pushing the eco-initiative to make the United States the leader of environmentally friendly technology, the President will speak candidly about the importance of education.
Dear Mr. President and Dear EVERY Teacher who intends on supporting a candidate and casting their vote, please think of the future! This generation of students is in the capable hands of amazing, excellent, inspiring teachers across this entire nation. BUT, with the cuts to pensions, healthcare, salary and budgets, a college graduate who may have been thinking of a career in education may not ever go into the career because they simply can’t afford to.
Teachers used to have a certain sense of job security and a secure hope of having them and their family provided for when they retire. For that, they take lower salaries. Anyway, what do you think? I don;t mean to preach on the subject but I deeply and truly believe that it is the teachers of America who shape the country in just the same way the brave members of the military, police force and firemen ensure our safety.
